About

Medical science has witnessed some profound technological advances just in the past few decades. This has had quite an impact on the way
we practice medicine, diagnose and treat. Modern medicine has challenged our understanding of humanity and has brought some serious ethical, philosophical, theological and legal dilemmas to the table.

As the field of medicine is developing at an ever-increasing rate, and the world has become a global village, we find ourselves in an information age where the public turns to online sources and multi-media to be informed about what is right or wrong thing to do.

Muslim leaders, the public, and stakeholder bodies need to be equipped, not only to effectively navigate the world of contemporary bioethics but to help others make sense of these important ethical questions, through a good understanding of scripture, informed expert guidance and an ability to present this work in a way which is impactful and useful for consumers i.e. Muslim public, health professionals and organisations.

In our 2nd International conference on Fiqh of Medicine, Al Balagh Academy will be presenting and exploring some important areas of Islamic Bioethics and Medical Fiqh related to the ethics of beginning of life, end of life, prospects of producing Islamic bioethical guidelines and frameworks, the role of Darul Iftas, Islamic framework for the covid-19 pandemic and the medical fiqh of fasting.

Saturday will focus on contemporary issues related to Islamic Bioethics, and Sunday will mainly focus on medical fiqh and its future developments. Both days are open to all, however, Sunday will be more dedicated to Muslim scholars who have an interest in the field and those who wish to gain more insight around engaging with shari’ah scholars and medical fiqh and fatawa bodies more generally.

Programme Aims

To increase awareness of contemporary medical bioethics from the Islamic perspective, its challenges and proposed future direction. To promote and advance a multidisciplinary approach to research and intelligence in producers and more engagement with consumers of Islamic Bioethics. To provide a forum and interpersonal contact between Medical Practitioners, Islamic Scholars (Ulama) and other academics and bodies, in order to build a network of support and resource for the future.

Who Should Attend?

The conference is intended to cater for medical, nursing and allied professionals and students, Sharia Scholars (Ulama) who feel the need for an opportunity to review and update their knowledge about Islamic medical ethical issues -also for Muslim healthcare leaders, Muslim health organisations, Pharmacists, Patients, Academics, Researchers and Health bodies. All participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance at the end of the conference.
